Kathleen Battle Signed Photograph in Le Nozze di Figaro

The American light lyric soprano (b. 1948) signed this photo, shown as Susanna in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro, next to Ruggero Raimondi, Arthur Korn and Jocylene Taillon. This was one of her most successful interpretations at the Metropolitan Opera in 1985-87.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro

One of Mozart’s most enduring masterpieces, Le Nozze di Figaro premiered in Vienna in 1786, the first of the composer’s three collaborations with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte (Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte were to follow). The opera never left the repertoire and for more than two centuries has attracted many of the world’s greatest singers. First seen at the Met in 1894, Figaro opens the company’s 2014–15 season in a new production.
